Honors College

The Honors College assists high-achieving and motivated students in making the absolute most of their undergraduate education. But it's about more than being smart. It's about being bold, pushing your intellect and pursuing scholarly opportunities. It's exploring new places -- in the mind and the world. It's your home away from home, academically and socially, where you share small classes and rigorous thinking with student-scholars as inquisitive as you.
